FROM THE DESK OF FR. BONA: (1) I will be away this week from the parish for few days. I am going to a canon law conference in Milwaukee, WI. For this reason, I will not have daily Mass Monday through Thursday. The Mass intentions that were scheduled for this week I will take with me and offer the Masses there. If there is an emergency, please call your closest, neighboring parish. Also, please know that hospitals ordinarily are covered by Catholic chaplains or substituting priests. If you are in the hospital, please ask for the staff to call the Catholic priest chaplain or a Catholic priest on duty. It is not enough to say “Catholic chaplain” as a chaplain may not be a priest. If there is another urgent matter, please email me at email@example.com. I will keep you all in my prayers.
(2) This Sunday we have a special Hungarian feast. On October 8, Hungarian liturgical calendar lists Blessed Virgin Mary, Our Lady of Hungary. In Hungarian language a title Boldogasszony, also called Nagyboldogasszony, is given to the Blessed Mother. It is the Hungarian equivalent of the Beata Virgo (Latin: “Blessed Virgin”), referring to the Virgin Mary as the patron saint of the Hungarian nation. Originally, Boldogasszony was probably one of the main deities of pagan Magyar mythology. The name was transferred to the Virgin Mary on the advice of St. Gerard of Csanad (Gerard Sagredo), one of the chief Christian evangelizers of Hungary. Stephen I, the first Hungarian king (997–1038), offered his country to Mary as the patroness of the Hungarians (Magyarok Nagyasszonya) at the end of his reign. As a consequence, the country was often referred to as Mary’s realm, the Regnum Marianum. On the occasion of the country’s millennial celebrations (1896), Pope Leo XIII sent an encyclical letter to the Hungarian nation, granting permission for Hungarian Catholics to celebrate the feast of the patroness Boldogasszony.
(3) This Sunday (October 8), at 11AM the music is provided by our Youth choir.
VOTE “NO” ON NOVEMBER BALLOTT ISSUE 1: If this proposed amendment is not defeated, it would (1) Put women at risk: • Health and safety standards in Ohio could be eliminated. Doctors could no longer need to examine a woman or explain the risks of the abortion procedure ahead of time. (2) Threaten parental rights: • A fifteen-year-old could have an abortion without her parents knowing. Current Ohio law requires parental notification and consent before a child under 18 can obtain an abortion. These parental right protections could be removed as they directly conflict with the amendment which would allow all individuals, including minors, to make their own reproductive decisions. (3) Allow for abortions of fully formed babies: • Abortion would be legal through all 9 months of pregnancy. Physicians at an abortion clinic could use a woman’s age or emotional well-being as a reason to perform an abortion in the 3rd trimester.
OUR PATRONAL FEASTDAY: On November 5, we will celebrate our patronal feastday.
NEW SUNDAY MASS SCHEDULE: 9AM Mass in English and 11AM Mass in Hungarian.
